Marriages are made in heaven and consummated on Earth.
Love is made in heaven and consummated on earth.
Time draweth wrinkles in a fair face, but addeth fresh colors to a fast friend, which neither heat, nor cold, nor misery, nor place, nor destiny, can alter or diminish
Where the mind is past hope, the heart is past shame

The true measure of life is not length, but honesty.
For experience teacheth me that straight trees have crooked roots.
A comely olde man as busie as a bee.
As the best wine doth make the sharpest vinegar, so the deepest love turneth to the deadliest hate.
He reckoneth without his Hostesse. Love knoweth no lawes.
Lette me stande to the maine chance.
A clear conscience is a sure card.
A clere conscience is a sure carde.
That honourable estate of Matrimony, which was sanctified in Paradise, allowed of the Patriarches, hallowed of the olde Prophets, and commended of al persons.
Goe to bed with the Lambe, and rise with the Larke.
